Talked to a neighborhood mechanic-he looked and could not find a petcock-he called a service deptmartment and was told not all 2000 Dakotas have a petcock and I should pull the lower hose and clean out the coolant reservoir by siponing the fluid out and flush and sipon until the water was clear. Believe this guy!!! I searched the net to find the radiator drain on my 2000 Dodge Dakota. I found about 6 answers that said it was on the lower part of the radiator on the drivers side. I found this answer and one more that said it didn't have a drain. I searched for it for half a day and decided that mine doesn't have a drain. I removed the hose to the water pump and some coolant drained out. I then ran a hose from the fawcet to my radiator and let the water overflow. I then disconnected the hose from the fawcet and let it syphon. I repeated this several times. I also removed the cap on the upper hose that mounts on top of the engine and flushed this hose with water. When you refill the radiator be sure to remove this upper hose from it's mounting clamp and hold it up and fill hose so that it will run into the engine. Otherwise you will create an air lock and cook your motor

Remove the plastic cover underneath the radiator(passenger side) to access the radiator drain and you will need a large screwdriver.

Drain the radiator. disconnect the top radiator hose from the engine. Remove the water inlet that the hose was hooked to. The thermostat is in the housing. Replace the gasket when replacing the thermostat.

The radiator drain plug on a 2001 Dodge Ram 3500 pickup truck with a 5.9 liter diesel engine is on the bottom inside corner of the radiator. It is on the driver's side.

The 2001 Dodge Dakota air conditioning drain hose is located on the bottom of the air conditioning compressor. The drain hose leads from the compressor to the bottom of the engine compartment.

open the drain at the bottom of the radiator and remove cap

The drain plug is in the bottom of the engine side of the radiator. If I remember right it's towards the center of the car end of the radiator, not the fender side. Good Luck!

look for the drain on the bottom left or right of the radiator, just open it up and the fluid from the radiator will drain.

drain the radiator down below the top hose and unhook the hose from the radiator and the engine and pull the hose off.

Most radiators on these new models do not have drain plugs, especially if it's an aftermarket taiwanese radiator. If you have not found one after looking for it, your best bet is to drain it by removing the hose that leads to the water pump.
